Where to Stay in Mexico City – Hotel Casa Gonzalez
Mexico City is truly an underrated, charming city. People’s immediate minds come to it being “dangerous” or “crowded”. Wow, did my recent visit prove everyone wrong. Mexico City was a modern city filled with so many charming neighborhoods, amazing food, and friendliest locals. The big question is where to stay in Mexico City? There are still dangerous surrounding outskirts but most folks recommend staying in La Reforma or La Condesa. I had the pleasure at staying at Hotel Casa Gonzalez, a quaint hotel that was a great location for our stay in Mexico City.
This quaint hotel is like living in a comfy cottage with prime location. It really is the ideal starting point to get to now and explore the capitol of Mexico.
The hotel itself is really like a home away from home or being invited to a close relative’s house. Very welcoming and adorned like a nice cottage. It does not feel commercial at all but rather like you’re staying a guest house.
The blue and white decor of the buildings has a very Santorini feel.
You walk into this hacienda of separate homes almost. There’s a lovely garden area which gives you a nice bit of tranquility away from the hustle and bustle of the city. They really try to create a peaceful oasis with the fountains and patios.
Our individual room was great. It had all the amenities we needed and made our stay both pleasant and comfortable. The room as very spacious and could sleep up to 3 people and had lovely patio views.
I was greeted with beautiful fresh flowers and bottled water.Our room was cozy and always made up the next day. One of the best parts about Hotel Casa Gonzalez is the excellent staff. The warm and friendly staff, quiet location, and cleanliness were all highlights of our stay here. When we needed a cup of coffee in the morning they were happy to brew it. When we needed any recommendations they went above and beyond to guide us.
The hotel has a private gate and feels safe which is something reassuring especially for solo travelers. But actually the surrounding neighborhood is lively with tons of restaurants around and even a fruit cart right on the corner. It’s a block away from the British Embassy and a few blocks away from the famed Paseo de la Reforma. If you’re into churros, the very popular Churreria El Moro is a brisk 5 minute walk away.
I am obsessed with their outdoor patio! Overall, a really great high value for what you get with prime location.
Thank you Hotel Casa Gonzalez for a wonderful and comfortable stay. Until next time!
